REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, JAKARTA - Indonesian police have prepared the personnel to assist the investigation of shooting of three Indonesian citizens in Malaysia. Another option is to coordinate with the International Police (Interpol) under the coordination of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
"The investigation of overseas case becomes the responsibility of local authorities. But, we can send our personnel if they need us," the Spokesman of Indonesian National Police, Saud Usman Nasution, said on Wednesday.
Malaysia's police shot three Indonesians allegedly involved in robbery to death in Jalan Selayang-Rawang, Selangor, Malaysia, on Tuesday morning. They are Sumardiono (34 year) from Lumajang, East Java; Marsudi (28 year) from Bangkalan, East Java; and Hasbullah (23 year)."From the post-mortem, two gunshot wounds are found in the chest, especially in Marsudi," Saud said
One of them, Marsudi, uses fake passport. "The number of his passport belongs to a woman from Lombok, named Sukinah Sanih," the Director of Indonesian Labor Protection in the Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Tatang Budi Utama Razak, said.
The Director General of Labor Placement and Development in the Ministry of Manpower and Transmigration, Reyna Usman, said the Ministry urged the labors to control themselves by socializing the valid legislation so that they did not breach the law. The socialization is applied to the candidates of Indonesian labors and those who have worked.
But still, Reyna said, some breached the law. Even, the illegal labors do not attend the socialization because they are afraid of repatriation. She added that the Indonesian citizens shot in Malaysia could be probably not labors. "People can stay abroad for three months," she said.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Manpower and Transmigration Muhaimin Iskandar asked UN's International Labor Organization (ILO) to urge its members to protect the labors. "We have entrusted specifically in ILO conference and the special meeting with the newly appointed Director General of ILO," Muhaimin said.
Six million of Indonesian labors are spread in Middle East, Asia Pacific, Europe, and US. Most of them, around 2.5 million, are in Malaysia. 1.5 million people are in Saudi Arabia and the rest are in Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.
